Re: I'm confused
What the US ballot needs is a "none of the above" as a choice for president.
I would like, in general, a preference voting system where you can vote for or against candidates, and you have a number of points to assign as you see fit. So, with 20 points as an example:
Fairly Sensible Boring Candidate: +1
Not Just No But Fucking Hell No Candidate: -9
Monster Raving Looney Candidate: +12
